Unfortunately we couldn't stay here longer. When we arrived we were shown to our room and Candice brought us fresh baked cookies. The room was nicely furnished. The bathroom was very modern with a "new" look to it. The breakfast the next morning was lovely. We look forward to staying here again.

We arrived at Parautane Lodge in the late afternoon as a tropical storm made its way into the Nelson area. The visibility wasn’t that great as we made our way up the gravel road and we unknowingly ended up parking next to the owner’s cars and not in the guest parking lot. Our hosts, Candace and Alan were keeping an... More

Great relaxing destination. We arrived late and awoke to the view below. It's quite a climb up to the Lodge, but once there, it is well worth it. In the morning we had a fabulous cooked breakfast and Candice and Alan were a lovely welcoming couple. From there it was 10 minutes down the road to the Nelson summer market!... More

Sadly we could only stay for 2 nights but those 2 nights were amazing.The Harris Suite was lovely and the views are breath taking.Only a short drive to Nelson where the choice of restaurant dining is amazing,would recomment "When in Rome" restaurant and "The Anchor"restaurant..Breakfasts at the Lodge were fantastic...cant wait to come back

From the first welcome cuppa and cookies we found friendly hospitality and attention to our needs. I chose omelets for breakfast, but there was plenty of choice. The views were expansive and stunning sunsets gave us camera- perfect shots. Alan and the team, you were great! We needed this time of relaxation, but there's plenty to do within an hours... More

Luxurious well appointed rooms with direct access to deck giving splendid views over the bay. We were very well looked after by our hosts. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is prepared to endure some difficulty in driving the last 1.5kms. It is worth it!!

If you enjoy friendly hosts, superb home-style cooking, luxurious well appointed rooms and stupendous views across the bay to distant mountains then look no further than Parautane Lodge, just a ten minute drive out of Nelson. We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights and really appreciated the kind hospitality of Alan and Candace who fed us splendidly and even smiled at... More

What a wonderful break away after a very hectic 2012. I wish we could have stayed longer. To be met after we arrived with freshly baked cookies and a welcoming Alan was great. Breakfast was everything you could want and more. Neither of us found the drive into Nelson any problem when we went into town for dinner and our... More

We stayed for the weekend and were absolutely blown away. The hospitality was amazing and not in-your-face. The rooms were lovely and luxurious - loved the bathroom. Everything was super clean and spacious. Superb views and lots of areas to lie in the sun and relax. Lovely breakfasts - and so much that we didn't need lunch! Wished we could... More
